i can turn it off

21Nov09

Falling into the digital abyss last week my brain was totally fried from a day of solving technical – AKA digital problems. I work in IT so that is my world for 8+ hours a day. Multi-tasking, juggling constant distractions – I feel like Gumby being stretched to my limits.

Digital Overload

SYSTEM FAILURE

I got into my car to drive home to be greeted by music from my XM radio at the turn of the key. It was basically background noise – loud and intrusive. Music that I normally find comfort in was just aggravating noise that put me into some sort of glassy-eyed trance as I drove.

And then it occurred to me – I can turn it off – the power button is right there and I can turn it off.

I press the button and something magical happens – I tune the digital world out and listen to the sound of raindrops hitting my windshield…

what a beautiful sound

    The radio in my Jeep recently went on the fritz and that has allowed many silent drives to and from work…it’s been pretty nice. I feel like my brain finally slows down and I can actually thing through an entire thought without jumping to something else:)
